Kraft recalls taco shells from grocery store shelves

Published on .

Kraft Foods will voluntarily recall its Taco Bell Home Originals taco shells from retail grocery outlets as a result of the presence in the shells of a corn variety not approved for use in food. The recall follows a Food & Drug Administration investigation into the presence of StarLink, a biotech corn that may cause allergic reactions in humans. Kraft executives said in a statement that while there appear to be no adverse health effects from the corn, the company had not intended that StarLink be used in the products.
